Oh...it's Monday

Well, yesterday was Mother's Day and it was a fairly relaxing day, which was good because the whole previous week was certainly not! The car accident on Tuesday pretty much just wrecked my whole week in having to deal with insurance, trying to get a rental car, and everything that goes along with it.

However, I did take time yesterday to wrap up my afghan. I think there might be a few stray ends that need to be woven in, but it's basically finished. The pictures show it in pieces, then the finished product. I'm pretty happy with it, as it is the first pieced project I have ever done. My mom laughed when she saw I was working granny squares. She used to make granny square stuff all the time. In fact, my fifth-grade picture was taken in a granny-square vest made of oranges browns and white. Very 70s. I am having a lot of fun with the idea of piecing, and looking forward to making more! In fact, I even ordered a used book from half.com that is all about granny squares and has a bunch of projects (including a couple of really ugly skirts) that was printed in the 70s. Truly retro.



Now that one project is done I think it must be time to start another...

So, how did you sew them together? I am working a crocheted granny square blanket and not knowing, I just sewed them together like I would a knit blanket. Chaun suggested single crochet it but I am almost finished. Can't change now!! Oh, and I really like that blanket. My favorite colors are blue's and green's. :))
